Wants Sledge Hammer Blows

To the Editor of The Press:
     Sir—No one notices with greater joy than myself the pounding you are giving daily to that cesspool of journalistic filth—the New York Journal. Keep it up, dear Mr. Editor, and let each stroke of your sledge hammer be more vigorous than the one that went before, until that breeder of anarchism, that deadly cause of those dastardly bullets, that caterer to the bestial life of human nature, is driven from the commun[i]ty.

    New York city [sic], Sept. 19.
